Easily spent a day at this wonderful castle. Plenty to keep kids and adults entertained with it walks, play areas, castle, museums. Ate in restaurant for lunch and had pleasant meal. Well worth a visit.

I am a bit of a castle junky and Egeskov castle has been a favorite of mine, since I was a little girl and used to visit with my Danish grandparents. I still go visit whenever I have a chance and look forward to show my daughter this amazing place, when time permits :-)

I live in Odense not too far from the castle and this is a place I always like to take visitors. There's something to see or do for everyone and especially in nice weather it's beautiful to walk atound in the park or sit down and have a picnic with a view of the castle.

Really nice activities, and good restaurant, but very unfortunate that you have to pay for entering the castle itself.

So, yes, we (74 & 50 year-old women) walked the 2.5 km from the Kværndrup station - which means we got to walk the 2.5 km back at the end of the visit. It appeared that there was a bus that ran to the road near the castle (Egeskovvej), but we could find nothing about it at the train station.... More

Although we found the castle closed the surrounding gardens made up for the disappointment. The park is well maintained and offers facilities for all. It was a pity we could not enter the Castle.

The castle is wonderful even though it is rather small. But there are many other tiny museums to visit. Every place offers English explanations, which is really nice. Also the tree-top walk is really fun, don't think that it's for the kids. To enjoy the place to its fullest, I would advise you to visit the place in spring or... More

Nice sceneries, beautiful roses in the garden, maze in the garden... the castle is a small one bit nevertheless very interesting. There is a park where kids can play too. There's an activity called tree top walking - most exciting of the whole trip. There are buttons that gives out the sound of birds chirping happily. The height combined with... More
